Over the course of its century-plus story, Baldinini has brought its designer footwear to some of the top fashion cities of Italy, Europe and beyond: Rome, Milan, Lugano, Paris, Moscow, St. Petersburg and many more, including Cannes. Here the 300-square-metre space on Rue d'Antibes features bright, neutral off-white stucco and natural grey marble flooring. It provides the perfect setting in which to appreciate the exciting colour and forms of Baldinini's products, from footwear to clutch bags, watches, eyewear and perfumes.
Both in the Paris boutique on rue Saint-Honoré and in the store on the Côte d'Azur, don't miss the delectable version of the Frida bag for this fall/winter season, including soft, furry versions in glorious shades. And then, the shoes, which include both the season's black and white colour schemes, and glorious colour with red, magenta and blue highlights. Baldinini has always been about the quality and the details, which are at once provocative, ironic and luxurious. Gold and nickel hardware, giant zips and buckles, metal bas-reliefs and plates, fringes, precious stones, ankle boots with giant formula-1-inspired treads, all combined with the brand's unerring sense of taste and style.
Men will also enjoy the visit, with rugged sneakers inspired by mountaineering looks, cool city ankle boots, looks in which giant buckles are accompanied by chunky laces and make-a-statement colour, and infinitely practical, timelessly attractive bags. We guarantee that whatever your personal tastes, you will find something that appeals at Baldinini's stores, whether in Paris, Cannes or in another of the 110 boutiques worldwide.
